One More For The People by Martha Grover

Eight years in the making, One More for the People is the first collection of Martha Grover's zine Somnambulist. Playful, wry, and conversational, One More for the People chronicles three generations in the life of the Grover family. As these idiosyncratic characters reluctantly confront adulthood, one Grover is always there to take notes. But after she's diagnosed with a rare and potentially fatal disease (whose 81 symptoms include dramatic changes to her appearance, not to mention the dreaded possibility of having to move back home), One More for the People becomes something unexpected: a survival guide. In the spirit of Lucy Grealy's Autobiography of a Face, Grover transforms her own misfortune into a tale as unsettling as it is entertaining.

PRAISE FOR ONE MORE FOR THE PEOPLE:

“Martha Grover is a genius. Her story is unique, but as I read Grover, some part of me always feels that this is everybody's autobiography. This is what it means to fiercely love a changing self."

Ariel Gore, author of Bluebird and Atlas of the Human Heart

“This is a book full of warmth and tenderness and your mom and your sister and family and life. It's a book that understands that your dad is a hell of a lot cooler than any of the kids on TV, and a hell of a lot weirder too. It's the type of book you put down, wipe the blood off your face and your hands, and shout, "HOLY MOTHER OF GOD, MORE LIFE, PLEASE!"

Scott McClanahan, author of Stories, Stories II, and Stories V!
